With all the negatives being printed about the Browns second half collapse against the Vikings here's a few positives to think about.

Cleveland took a 13-10 half time lead against a Minnesota team picked by many to be a Super Bowl contender this year.

The Browns held the best running back in the NFL, Adrian Peterson to 25 yards rushing in the 1st half.

Cleveland recorded four sacks against the Vikings.

Josh Cribbs returned a punt 67 yards for a touchdown.

Jamal Lewis ran the ball hard today. I've been a critic of Lewis lately but I will give him his due today.

Joe Thomas did a good job on Jared Allen.

I thought Kameron Wimbley had one of his better games in a while. That's sure nice to see.

When Cleveland loses I'm usually not very positive in my assessment of the game and today was no exception. With all the negativity I felt I had to find some positives. Feel free to comment on any I might have missed.
